    According to german news-tickers that are reporting
    about that since last week, it was hacking by stupid
    accident. The boy was filling out online-forms for
    moving domains to another provider for amazon.de,
    ebay.de and other big websites.

    And to his big surprise the moving of ebay.de was
    confirmed and he became the new owner of this name.

    Who's fault this was is not known at the moment, but
    it was not a real attempt of hacking EBay.

    Regards, Lothar
